Oh look, Chicken Thursday!

Down through my life many people have wished I would cover my face when going out in public. Wish granted!

Grandma Cybersalt and I are very thankful to a friend of ours who sewed these masks for us. It seems odd to think about going out in public wearing them (our provincial medical doctor is still asking us to wait two more weeks before "doubling our bubble") but not as weird as risking the lives of others or ourselves.

Speaking of weird, I've noticed a very strange new type of person on my TV. People who claim to be pro-life while at the same time arguing for the sacrifice of the elderly and weaker members of society for their own gain and comfortable standard of living. Just imagine the thoughts of those who sacrificed their own lives in WW2, so their children could live long lives in peace, if you were to tell them a future generation would sacrifice those same children as seniors for a haircut and a hamburger.

Sunday greetings everyone!

The other night I was in the kitchen with Mrs. Cybersalt when I realized the next day was Saturday, which meant it was Friday night and that meant  . . . . .  actually I could not think of anything that meant. Another isolation Saturday would be just like all the others. I'm still OK with that because these days are a necessary season that will pass too. Days running into days, running into days, put me in mind of this hymn written in 1865 by Lina Sandell several years after she had witnessed the tragic drowning death of her father.

The truths sung in this old hymn hold true whether it is one day or a thousand that sets us on our heels:

Sunday greetings everyone!

I don't know if you have ever watched the Bill Murray movie "Groundhog Day," but I can definitely identify with the main character in that movie who wakes up to live the same day over and over again with no end in sight. I'm not ready to take the groundhog for a ride to the quarry yet, but a new career as concert pianist may still be within reach!

On a more somber note, yesterday I learned of the sudden passing of a lovely man from my former church. We had a fun connection, sharing the same birthday. I'm not sure what shape remembering his life is going to take, but with gathering restrictions and wisdom in place, it will be something virtual. The pandemic has left little untouched with its arrival (I don't think we're in its wake yet), however I am encouraged and thankful that there remains an important truth it can never touch.

With that in mind, this week I thought I'd share a video with you that was created by an online friend. He has been putting together virtual choirs long before that was the only choir we were allowed to have:

Chicken Thursday Don NOh look, Chicken Thursday!

Thanks to Don N. for today's chicken picture which he found along the way on Facebook. Neither he nor I could find the origin of this image so just like this chicken I'm going for it! You should too today - as long as you do so 6 feet away from others and without touching your face.

Sunday greetings everyone!

Here at Cybersalt World Headquarters, Grandma Cybersalt and I have been staying safe at home for a month now. It looks like we have at least another 4 weeks before our province may begin to relax some restrictions. We're OK with that - after all,  you wear parachute all the way to the ground, not until it's slowed you down quite a bit.

Still, waiting is not always easy and that's why I thought I'd share the following song this week:

Rev. James Snyder and his wife have been spending a lot of time alone together with the food she cooks. You can read "Time Alone Is Time Invested" at:

Chicken Thursday Richard TOh look, Chicken Thursday!

Thanks to Richard T. for another chicken picture! He saw this chicken crossing the road - I don't know why, but he may have just tried to eat that bug.

A while ago, I mentioned that Cybersalt is training a persecuted Christian to be able to make web pages as a source of income for his family and to ultimately train others to do the same in his country. He has just helped out by working on his first Cybersalt project.

A walking club asked for the information from their very old website (built in a system no longer being supported) and make them a WordPress site. They didn't have a huge budget for all the work to be done, so they asked for the very basic structure and some video training tutorials so they could work on the the rest. Our trainee did a bunch of the work recreating their pages to give them a good foundation to build on.

That new site is now live at: www.victoriapathfinders.ca. The walking club still have much of their work to do including getting a new logo designed for them, which I will add to the site when it is ready. You can still see the old website at gardencitywanderers.ca 

I'm looking for more projects to train our protege on. If you have one please reply to this email and let me know.

Resurrection Sunday greetings everyone: the Lord is risen!

This pandemic has reminded us how we are incapable of hanging on to even the most precious of people in our lives, let alone the very vainest of things such as sports, entertainment, success, fame, etc. If a virus from an unsanitary market in a faraway land can take it away from you, it doesn't deserve the devotion of your life. The resurrection of Jesus reminds us that He alone is worthy of that.

When the plates in your life are all falling down, remember that Jesus love you and is calling you into His arms.
